Are you ready for a powerful idea?

Shotgun Golf. Hunter S. Thompson has an idea for Bill Murray. I'm not sure it would check out with the NRA's Gun Safety Rules, though. Other people have been creative when it comes to shooting things with shotguns. The combination of shotguns and golf has even been done before, although in a very different way. Fire at will!

Didn't want to put it in the post, but this is my first FPP.
Also, I think this is the type of driving range they discuss.

Hunter S. Thompson is a dick. I know people who had to live near him in Aspen, and he's made life hell for them.

Why do we modern souls idolize assholes and thugs? I call this the "Muhammed Ali" problem.

You can just read between Murray's lines where he must be thinking, "OK, I have to be polite, laugh, and go along with whatever he says as much as practical or he might show up at my door with that shotgun and blow my ass off."

They have one of these driving ranges on Wilshire here in Los Angeles. Lots of fun after drinking in the parking lot...

I remember one Halloween a few years back when I tried shooting shotgun shells full of finely ground sawdust. Big plume of sparks out the muzzle. I wish I'd had powdered magnesium to try -- I bet I would've gotten a big blast of brilliant white.

Why doesn't HST ever call me at 3:30 am? Just once, I'd like him to give me a buzz and just tell me what's on his mind.

I prefer sniper golf.
Properly done with the right equipment and training, it's unseen as well as unheard.

You hate Muhammad Ali and HST. I feel for you! You've got no (modern) soul! And besides, did it ever occur to you that the feelings betwen HST and your pals in Aspen are mutual?

How wild is it that we were talking about him shortly before his death?

Well - you all were talking about him... I was reading about him.
